Every month or so, a group as small as a single class or as large as the entire school watches a student or teacher attempt to support a presentation with a streaming media clip from the web. Often, the media sputters and stalls in front of everyone, ruining the presentation. I finally poked around the web to find software that would capture a streaming media presentation into a complete file. I found WMRecorder, which has both Windows Media and RealMedia applications for capturing streaming presentations. I gave this to a student, who used it successfully to capture video for an Amnesty International presentation tomorrow. This software looks pretty good, but I would like to know of free alternatives, including one for streaming QuickTime files. Let me know if you have used others before.
